May 16 — Churls
Something like a washed-out, expanded version of "Pet Sounds," Churls is the stuff of Omaha porch jams and barbecues. Featuring members of UUVVWWZ and Son, Ambulance, their core is a trio of inseparable pop singers.
May 23 — Red Cities
The kind of head-on, voluminous rock 'n' roll Red Cities plays is informed by vast backgrounds in the genre. The four-piece's collective musical experiences span the last thirty years, multiple genres and multiple states.
